I’m not biter with Jubilee for being out of Cabinet: Ngilu

National Rainbow Coalition (Narc) Party leader Charity Ngilu has said she is not bitter with the Jubilee government even after her ouster from the cabinet following corruption allegations.

Ngilu said that she was forced out of the government by schemes orchestrated by cartels after her attempts to streamline the Lands ministry that has for decades been riddled with corruption allegations.

She maintained that up to now no evidence has been linked to her against any corruption dealings but has only been accused of obstructing the collection of evidence in relation to the Karen land saga.

“I have nothing against the Jubilee government even after my ouster. I was forced out of the government by cartels that did not want us to deal with corruption especially where I worked at the Lands ministry,” Ngilu said during an interview on citizen.

She was sacked among other four CS by President Uhuru Kenyatta in March last year after they were adversely mentioned in the infamous 173-name and shame list of corrupt civil servants that the president tabled in parliament.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) had accused Ngilu of obstructing the collection of evidence in the Karen Land saga by directing Lands officials not to release documents to its investigators or even record any statements regarding the matter.

Ngilu however remained non-committal on her relation with the presidency only mentioning that President Kenyatta is the president of all Kenyans and as such she speaks and relates to all Kenyans including him.

“The president is our head of state and relates to all Kenyans including myself. I speak to all Kenyans as well,” added the former Land CS.

She has however vowed to throw her ring in the Kitui gubernatorial race in the next General Election on a Narc Party ticket but noted that it was too early to say which coalition she would join.

“Since I am not in government I have been speaking to Ukambani residents promoting the party’s ideologies which are food, water, women empowerment and education,” she said.
